Volunteer Spotlight: Mat

The animals at the centre are delightful, funny, and devilishly clever...

My time there was an unparalleled chance to learn about animals: their care, feeding and habits. It was a chance to become really close to some of the animals. You will never forget when a (formerly) aggressive monkey becomes used to you and reaches out to groom you. The animals at the centre are delightful, funny, and devilishly clever. You will miss them and remember them clearly for the rest of your life.

In addition to the animals, you'll meet fellow volunteers from around the world and make friends with them. You'll never forget when a (formerly) aggressive Brit reaches out and offers you a smoke. Lastly, it's a real opportunity to learn about a small part of Thailand. You get to know the people, and some of the customs. You'll pick up strange and muddled Thai vocabulary, mostly concerning fruit and tools. And, in the end you'll really come to enjoy the beauty of the place you stay in.
